Abstract

Until a few years ago, most of the recognized examples of miscible polymer blend pairs involved only amorphous components. However, recently numerous blend systems have been identified in which one or both components are crystallizable. The systems of interest here are miscible in the melt state, but upon cooling one or more of the components separates from the mixture as a pure crystalline phase. This form of solid-liquid phase separation represents a different situation than a liquid-liquid miscibility gap since complete miscibility may still exist in the remaining amorphous phase. The objective of this paper is to review some of the pertinent fundamental issues and recent results for miscible blends where crystallization is possible.
